Top off a day in paradise with a helicopter tour at sunset. Depart from the Kona and head north in a comfortable Bell 407 helicopter to see Mauna Loa, Kealakekua Bay, and gorgeous beaches tucked away along the Kona and Kohala coasts.

Fly to the far side of the Kohala Mountains to see hidden and nearly inaccessible valleys and waterfalls. Next, crest Mauna Loa, one of the world’s largest volcanoes. With the sun behind the mountain, spot glowing lava as well as the magma lake within Halemaumau Crater. Admire some of the most striking beaches in the world—the black-sand Punalu‘u Beach and the green-sand Papakōlea Beach.

While you soar over Pu‘uhonua o Hōnaunau, a place of refuge under Hawaiian law, and Kealakekua Bay where Captain James Cook came ashore, the sun begins to set. As the sky turns shades of bright yellow, deep orange, burning red—and occasionally purple—watch for a green flash as the sun dips below the horizon. Don’t forget to turn around, as the last rays of light illuminate the clouds behind you.
